Black-throated Gray Warbler

Only three records for this warbler in the Dakotas or Minnesota are depicted on eBird maps. This bird breeds in the Pacific Northwest, the American Southwest, and in the intervening western Rocky Mountains; it winters in Mexico. Within its range, this warbler prefers pinon-juniper, pine and mixed oak-pine forests. In September 1986, George Prisbe and I found an out-of-range individual in a city park in Aberdeen, South Dakota. This photo was taken years ago in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument of southern Arizona.
